Melbourne Beach

Melbourne Beach

One of Brevard County's southern-most beachside communities, Melbourne Beach provides all the pleasure of the Space Coast while also allowing for quick excursions to take in the sights and scenery of the Indian River County cities of Sebastian and Vero Beach.

The Town of Melbourne Beach, which was established in 1883, is Brevard's oldest beach community. The town was incorporated in 1923 with a population of a few hundred residents. After World War II, the town's population growth steadily increased to its current total of 3,335. The projected maximum population, based upon past growth trends and future extrapolations, is approximately 4,000 residents.

Points of interest in Melbourne Beach include Ryckman House, the Sea Turtle Preservation Society and Flutie Athletic Complex, which is well equipped with picnic area, community center, playground, tennis courts, soccer and Little League fields, multi-use fields, and a concession stand. Long Point Park is popular for riverfront camping, and has excellent facilities including hot showers, laundry, picnic areas, pavilion, restrooms, swimming lake, boat ramp and canoe rentals.
